I'm starting to think they are never going to come with that new spacer fitted, as they basically want you to pay extra for it..!! ?
Bingo! I’m making a talion EXB. Well, my rendition of it.. not exb towers, it’ll be lightweight stuff. You’ll have to stay tuned! Don’t wanna give it all away. He he. Also, I will be making another one to sell. V5 electronics and RTR out the box. We’ll see how it goes ?? Also got a Mojave EXB to do the same thing with. Sooo, Mojave exb and kraton exb soon to the classifieds ?? brand new motors installed, diffs serviced, ready to rip. ??
Get it! You get a free hat right now ??. Plus don’t miss out on your points
your ziti is getting cold...Finally opened the rear diff today on an Kraton EXB I got 2 weeks ago. Fluid was very low. Only two shims under each star gear. Not 3? Added an additional 59 shim to the ring gear side. Couldn’t fit one under the pin on cup side. That side was tight.

I was only able to use two per sideThat’s what happens when your dining room doubles as workshop.
Not going to work out with that 3rd shim I added to the ring gear side. Too crunchy when reassembled. Could it be that the diff came shimmed properly from the factory with only 2 shims per side? Every diagram I’ve seen tells me 3 per side. Maybe I’m just losing my mind...
I took out one of the 59 shims and replaced it with a 60 Shim on the ring gear side. I believe adding .1mm even though both packages say .2. Still staying with 2 shims totalCan't remember off the top of my head but I know you want the larger diameter shim at the o-rings first then the next shim to give the outdrive minimal play.
I tried 3 shims too and just felt too tight and crunchy like you said. And I was only able to fit 2 13x16 shims when installing the diff back into the diff casing @MT4G3
